Conference dinner at Ettington Park Hotel
Conference dinner and ‘table magic’ in the Long Gallery at the beautiful Ettington Park Hotel, Alderminster, Stratford–upon–Avon, Warwickshire, CV37 8BU. Ettington Park is a spectacular neo–gothic mansion situated six miles from Stratford–upon–Avon in the picturesque Stour Valley. The Shirleys, one of Warwickshire’s oldest families, owned Ettington for many years. Their lineage can be traced back over a thousand years. There is also archaeological evidence that there has been human habitation in the area for at least 2,000 years. It is very much possible that a Roman villa once existed on the site of the Ettington Park Hotel, which since that time has undergone many transitions.
